The MAKE UP STORE has come over from Sweden WOOOOOO
They have some amazing products!
I got hold of a fab magazine, which I think is only available in the store, a pro card, some skincare sample and an eye shadow.
The packaging is fun, maybe a little flimsy that's all. Colour pay off is great and the selection is massive! They have loads of pots of glitter, colours, lashes, brushes - all the good stuff.
Now open on Carnaby Street
When the winds of Marc are wakening the crocuses and crickets,
Did you ever find a fairy near some budding little thickets?
And when she sees you creeping up to get a closer peek,
She tumbles through the daffodils, a playing hide and seek.
Extract from Finding Fairies Marjorie Barrows 1930
Molton Brown currently has a gorgeous fresh countryside (Limited Edition) spring collection -Wilde Fairyfleur - and they say that fairyfleur are intertwined with English folklore and were traditionally believed to bring good luck and provide a hiding place for fairies.
-How cute is that, I really enjoyed reading this whilst I was showering-
The products are packed with natural ingredients (which is key for me) and notes of citrus, rose and amber which really boost your skins condition and improve your skins moisture balance.
I picked up the bath and shower wash for a test drive, which is a great 300ml and filled right to the very top!
Now I'm fussy about products, my skin is hyper sensitive and is very easily irritated, I always check the ingredients and will certainly stop using it if I find it has caused a problem - this often means I don't get to use wonderfully smelly products.
But this....well...I absolutely love it and so does my skin!
It seems really moisturising and makes my whole bathroom smell delicious, like meadows, it's light and airy but the smells cling on to my skin and towels all day, it's wonderful.
Everyone needs a pick me up ready for spring......I'm heading back for the body lotion!
Go and get yours now, it's Limited Edition x x

So pastels are fully in for Spring Summer....... I'm not sure about it, it's not really my cup of tea.
I recently did a shoot with Photographer Pedro Gabriel and Stylist Helen McGuckin....
.... we used a Barry M Nail Paint in 304 Mint Green. I'm not a fan, obviously there are many of you who love it and all the similar shades of it by other brands, but I just feel it's a little strange, it is a green!?
However I am a fan of the 308 Berry Ice Cream (middle) 119 Baby Pink (last) and 305 Pink Flamingo (first).
Barry M are the very best for "cheaper" nail colours. I LOVE THEM
WATCH OUT FOR: When buy colours like these, for nails or lips, just make sure they are not too chalky, some contain quite a lot of white pigment, these give an effect that reminds me of tippex, please don't fall in love with said colours.
Revlon -Day Dreamer Collection = The lip glosses are lovely, no no to nails though.
With Love x
